Sinus congestion is one of those irritating ailments that bugs me constantly. I don’t know if it’s living in Kansas or if it’s just my make up, but I get congested a lot.
Over the weekend I concocted what I like to call a sinus bath. It’s bath salts with my favorite essential oils for keeping my airways clean. The result is a relaxing bath that will hopefully provide some relief. (If you don’t have time for a bath, try these shower bombs instead.)
How To Make a Sinus Bath
To make this, you’ll need the following:
- 1 cup of Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- A mason jar or airtight container
- Peppermint essential oils
- Eucalyptus Radiata essential oils
- Optional: green food coloring
Mix the baking soda and Epsom salt together. Once it’s mixed, add in the food coloring if you’re going to complete that step. All this does is make it look colorful, otherwise it will be white.
Then add 5 drops of peppermint oil and 10 drops of eucalyptus oil. Mix it all up, and put it in a jar. Now you have this ready to go when you feel congested and all around icky. Just draw a warm bath and put a couple of scoops of this in with the water.
